Pale Pink Walls


My comfort zone, when it comes to walls, is white. Or a very light gray. But lately, I've seen a number of spaces with pale pink walls that look amazing. And no, they're not little girls' rooms! I think the key to pulling this off is to use a very light shade of pink that has some gray mixed in, so it's not too "bubblegum"--then mix it with darker, more grown-up colors like black, navy, or hunter green. What do you think? I feel like this is a love it or hate it look.

Pale pink, copper, and the cutest little house shelves

I’ve already got a DIY in mind inspired by those house-shaped boxes…they are so cute!

You might remember this photo from the post I wrote on half-painted walls (and other half-painted things) back in 2012. I still love that trend!

Trend to try: pale pink walls

More of those awesome little boxes for holding artsy objects.

For like ever

Light pink walls

I think all these rooms look pretty grown-up and not too girly. If your pink is really soft and muted, its practically a neutral, right?

What do you think? I already have a lot of pink in my living room, but Im definitely tempted to try this somewhere in the future.

    I especially love that second picture! From the pendant light to the house-shaped boxes and the geometric ball in one of the houses--great stuff. But you're right: all of these rooms look grown-up, soft, neutral.

      Thanks! I love that one too. Those house-shaped boxes are super adorable!

    i think it's beautiful yet still a bit feminine.

      Yes, it's definitely still feminine--but like a lady and not a little girl...at least I think so!

    Love that half painted room!! Looks great with that pop of yellow on the wall. Feels like the inside of a giant flower! The pink really doesn't feel to girly either -surprised me!

      I love that half-painted room too!!! Everything about it.

    Lovely color! I like the ones that are the warmer shade more than the purplish shade. The shelf of houses is so cute!!!

      Aren't they? I am going to try and DIY some.

    I would love it. Jim would not. :) When the girls were little they had a pink room. Loved it, but did get tired of it and chose a different color when they switched rooms. I do like the half painted room. I tend to love any pastels. Pink is a favorite.

      Yeah, I'm pretty sure Ben would nix this wall color in any room except a (future) girl's room. I could probably get away with painting a door or a piece of furniture. But we'll see! Pink is definitely my favorite too.

    So pretty, but I'm not sure I'd do it in my own house. But these photos sure make it look enticing!

    Sadly, I don't think that my hubs would EVER go for a pink wall.... but I think they look pretty cool! I would have never thought of doing a living room wall pink! Thanks for the new Ideas!

    I like using pale pink shades on the ceilings of neutral bedrooms or bathrooms instead of white. Add a little up lighting and it gives everyone a soft glow from the reflected light. Most people barely notice the pinkish hue so it doesn't seem too girly.

    My daughter's room has 2 light pink walls. I would of loved for all to be the hint of pink walls, we designed it together! Yes I have noticed the wall with pink hues a lot while researching her room design and fell in love with it too!

    Loving the pale pink pop of color!

    I love the pink, but agree it can be tricky to find the right color
    What colors are you showing above?
    I have a powder room with black accents. The pink would look great!

    What color pink did you use on your half painted pink living room wall? Love it?
